Scientologists claim "Turkey is a backwards country full of Moslims" that need Scientologists to straighten them out:

Actually, if you want laughs: I'm looking into whether there's any way to contact the Turkish Government.  Sadly, I've lost contacts with my friends over there.  Otherwise, this would be very easy!

An ex-BF who lived in Turkey briefly reported that the Xtians, Jews and Muslims all live together there in a state of harmony, for the most part. However, ballsy, ill-informed cultists swarming into Turkey eager to "educate" the "stupid, ignorant Moslems" would not go over very well, I don't think.

Yeah, that's about it.  Basically, part of the way the government enforces this is a proselytizing law: one can't try to convert someone else, but someone may freely ask another about beliefs.

I guess to clarify, if I were there I could ask any Muslim questions about their faith.  But I could not walk up to someone and attempt to convert that person to anything I happened to believe.

I think that, the implied use of front groups to infiltrate (and spread Scientology), along with the domination desires and the fact that other nations have banned or brought criminal charges against Scientology would be a big push if I could only find contact information.

....AND, since Scientology is ALL ABOUT converting and indoctrinating, I doubt the Turkish government will look kindly upon such shenanigans.

You might try asking around for Turkish critics, or people who might have Turkish contacts.
